Rays shut Drew Smyly down


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) The Rays have shut pitcher Drew Smyly down, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Smyly ends his season with a 3.24 ERA and 133:42 K:BB ratio in 153 innings with the Rays and Tigers. He threw just 76 innings while working exclusively out of the bullpen last season. The team's starter for Friday has yet to be announced.


Drew Smyly might be done for 2014


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) According to the Tampa Bay Times, Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly may not pitch again for the rest of this season. Smyly may make one more start, but with his innings total already at 153 for the season, he could get shut down immediately. He has already exceeded his previous career high by 36 innings.

Rays executive vice president Andrew Friedman and manager Joe Maddon are expected to meet with other club officials within the next few days to decide upon a course of action for Smyly, who was acquired from the Tigers at the July 31 trade deadline. He was a key part of the package received by the Rays in exchange for former ace David Price.

Smyly turned in the latest of a series of strong performances on Saturday when he held the Orioles to one run over six innings.


Bullpen lets Drew Smyly down in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly put together a strong performance Saturday, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 3-2 win over the Orioles.

Smyly allowed just one run in six inning of work, and exited in line for the win before the bullpen let go of the lead. He allowed his one run on four hits and a pair of walks, while striking out eight batters, his second highest total since joining the Rays in early August.

Smyly remains 3-1 in seven starts with the Rays, while posting a 1.69 ERA in 47 2/3 innings. He will try to keep rolling in his next outing, set for Friday in Toronto. 


Drew Smyly strikes out seven in no-decision vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly wasn't a factor in Monday's decision, giving up two earned runs on three hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-3, 10-inning win over the Red Sox.

Smyly served up an RBI double in the top of the third inning before his team delivered three runs of support in the bottom half of the third. He then gave up a solo home run in the fourth and later watched his offense take him off the hook in the eighth. Smyly owns a 3.31 ERA and 125:40 K:BB ratio in 147 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Saturday.


Drew Smyly on innings limit


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly will be held to about 150 innings this season, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Joe Maddon said Smyly would likely be held between 150 innings and 160 innings. Smyly has already reached his career-high in innings, and currently sits at 141 1/3 on the year. Smyly has put up strong numbers, posting a 3.31 ERA, but he's never thrown more than 117 innings over a full season. 


Drew Smyly must-own, but not must-start


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2014) Drew Smyly probably isn't as good as he's shown since joining the Rays. Granted, you shouldn't put anything past their coaching staff -- Alex Cobb, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi all appear well on their way to maximizing their talents -- but in his last four starts, Smyly has been as good as the man he was traded for, perennial Cy Young contender David Price. No transformation is that sudden.

The most telling number for me is that one that falls well short of Price's standards: During that four-start stretch, Smyly has averaged 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings. And yet he's allowed 11 hits in 30 2/3 innings. The result is an impossibly low .111 BABIP.

Of course, one look at his 0.88 ERA during that four-start stretch would tell you it's something he can't sustain, so maybe I'm going overboard digging into the advanced numbers there. My point is this: He's good, but with middle-of-the-road strikeout ability and an occasional vulnerability to home runs, I don't see him becoming start-him-every-week good.

In a relief pitcher spot in a points league, maybe, but otherwise, keep an eye on the matchups and weigh your alternatives.


Drew Smyly turns in fantastic start Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Orioles. 

Smyly allowed one run on two hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the start. The Orioles picked up their only run in the second inning on a Chris Davis solo shot. Following that at-bat, Smyly retired the next 12 Orioles. His streak was broken by a two-out single in the sixth inning. Smyly threw 87 pitches during the appearance. 

With the win, Smyly improved to 9-10. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.


Drew Smyly throws two-hitter Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly threw a two-hitter Friday against the Blue Jays.

Smyly allowed just two hits over nine scoreless innings. He struck out four and did not issue any walks. Smyly threw 105 pitches during the outing. Smyly gave up a hit to the first batter he faced during the contest. He quickly erased that hit with a double-play. The only other hit against Smyly came in the third inning. He was able to work around the hit without giving up a run. Smyly faced just one batter over the minimum throughout the start. 

With the win, Smyly improved to 8-10. He'll take on the Orioles in his next start. 


Drew Smyly picks up no decision despite strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Rays pitcher Drew Smyly turned in a strong start Saturday against the Yankees.

Smyly allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings of work. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. The long ball was the only blemish on Smyly’s day. With a man on base, Smyly allowed a two-run homer to Martin Prado in the second inning. He was able to settle in after that, tossing an additional five scoreless innings. The Rays managed to battle back during the start, giving Smyly a no-decision. 

Smyly will take on the Blue Jays in his next start.

Drew Smyly clobbered before move to Rays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Left-hander Drew Smyly did a five-and-fly Thursday - literally. He pitched five poor innings for the Tigers against the White Sox before leaving for trade destination Tampa Bay.

It could have been worse for Smyly, who worked around 11 hits to give up just four runs with no walks and two strikeouts. He did not retire Chicago in order in any inning.

It remains to be confirmed when Smyly makes his debut with the Rays. He is on schedule to pitch in Oakland on Tuesday.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Prior to this game, Smyly did not strike out more than seven batters in a game this season. He owns a 3.77 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 100 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Thursday at home against the White Sox.


Drew Smyly has reason to smile after defeat of Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Inconsistent Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly had it working Sunday - and it resulted in his team avoiding its first-ever four-game sweep to the Indians at home.

Smyly was hurt only by a solo home run off the bat of Yan Gomes in giving up one run on four hits in seven innings. He had a no-hitter alive until Gomes doubled in the fifth. Smyly walked two and fanned six as he kept the Indians off-balance, raised his record to 6-8 and lowered his ERA to 3.80.

He is slated to pitch again Friday against the host Angels.

Drew Smyly to stay in rotation - at least for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) A second straight terrible start by Tigers left-hander Drew Smyly does not have Brad Ausmus on the verge of removing him from the rotation, MLB.com has reported.

Smyly yielded five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings Friday night in a loss to Tampa Bay. He has given up nine runs in 7 2/3 innings in his last two appearances combined.

An open date Monday would give Ausmus the option of at least skipping his next start, but he declared that each of his starters would simply be given an extra day of rest. Smyly is slated to pitch Thursday against Kansas City.
